The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the must-pass bill that funds our military, includes multiple riders that will hurt our wildlife. And one of those riders will prohibit listing the Greater sage-grouse for 10 years. The grouse’s population has already declined by 97% when compared to historic levels, so a 10-year delay could be an extinction sentence.
Call Senator Gardner right now at 844-652-3138 or by entering your information on this page and tell him to oppose all riders that undermine the Endangered Species Act on the NDAA!

Please vote against any riders that would undermine the Endangered Species Act and harm our wildlife in Colorado. Thank you for your time.”
Don’t let our decision makers use the continued existence of an entire species as a bargaining chip. Call Senator Gardner now by dialing 844-652-3138 or entering your information on our call tool for it to call you back!
